Conceived during the height of the pandemic lockdown, Jed Yabut Furniture & Design is the product of a subtle re-imagination of Filipino contemporary furniture. The collection uses 100% local, green & natural raw materials, with rattan as the primary material. All our pieces are individually crafted using traditional methods by highly skilled local artisans, from all over the Philippines. The artisans have brought with them decades of experience in framing, weaving, and decorating rattan products for local and export markets. To this day, they continue to elevate the heritage of Filipino rattan craftsmanship.
Our furniture, defined by a modern interpretation of Filipino aesthetics, emphasizes random patterns and varied textures as an homage to Filipino sensibilities of "beautiful chaos" and resourcefulness. Though chaotic, the general look remains visually cohesive, light and clean. Several pieces in this collection reveal minimalist silhouettes focusing on negative spaces.
The designs also take inspiration from varied Filipino festivities, flora and geographies, architecture, and cultural icons. Each piece is designed to be compact, practical, and multi-purpose, suitable in grand homes and micro-condo units.
We are one in the spirit of the #SupportLocal and #LoveLocal campaigns as we elevate and push Filipino creativity to greater heights for local and global markets.
